The graveyard at Callanish lies 1 mile north of the famous Stones. From the A858 Garynahine to Barvas road, take the side-road which is located about a mile past the turn-off to the Stones. After a mile, the road reaches a T-junction opposite a white house with a lone tree, where you should turn right. The cemetery lies about half a mile to the north, and looks out over Loch Roag and the village of Breasclete.

Grid reference: NB212343

It is not advisable to drive from the Visitor Centre at the Callanish Stones, as this is a steep (1 in 7) and narrow road. Dealing with oncoming traffic can be very tricky.
